Bill MacGregor’s Strange “Tuning Fork” book

Bill MacGregor, son of Pastor Robert MacGregor at Trinity Baptist Church in Toronto, wrote a book called “The tuning fork.” In the video below he uses to advertise it, he proclaims that a greater miracle than the parting of the red sea,etc. is the idea that Isaiah’s 66 books supposedly align prophetically to the 66 books of the Bible. In General, the New IFB has been against this kind of numerological pseudo-deeper knowledge stuff, but they overlooked Bill MacGregor while he was in their movement.

Another interesting thing is that there are six endorsements for the book on MacGregor’s website, but not unless you go to his press release do you find another endorsement from Bill Grady. Perhaps this has been overlooked to remove from the site, as Bill Grady is anathema in the New IFB now.

As commented by Bill MacGregor below, Steven Anderson has also preached this idea in the following sermon video. See MacGregor’s recent YouTube comment below the video

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and baby daughter am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Comparative Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.

    Actually, the idea that the 66 chapters of Isaiah align miraculously with the 66 books of the Bible is not a numerological phenomenon. It is a literary phenomenon. My book, The Tuning Fork is not the first work to deal with the topic, it is however the most thorough and is perhaps the first to posit the miraculous nature of the phenomenon. In fact Pastor Anderson has even preached about it here:

      I have updated the post to show Pastor Anderson’s sermon as well. Thanks for the info.
